In the present, Other Neferet may have left her House of Night, but she has far from given up her goal of immortality and world domination. As she operates in secret to gain access to Old Magick, the new High Priestess, Anastasia Langford, works toward peace and acceptance for the vampyres of the Other World. But just as Other Kevin's broken heart will take time to heal, peace in that world will also take time and work-and not all of the Other World vampyres want peace. After all, why should they return to being shunned by humans, especially when they've had a taste of how it feels to be in power?
Meanwhile, Zoey is desperate to help rid the Other World of Neferet once and for all, and not knowing what's going on over there is eating away at her. But, as the Nerd Herd warns, it's far too dangerous to call on Old Magick time and again. As a distraction, she throws herself into her work and attempts to bring the humans and vampyres of Tulsa closer together with the first human-vampyre swim meet in history! It's too bad that something always seems to go wrong whenever the stakes are high.
What happens when worlds clash and powers that should be left alone are awakened? Can Other Kevin and his world heal from the wounds Neferet continues to inflict? Can Old Magick ever truly be harnessed and used for good? Or will Darkness extinguish Light and leave our heroes broken, hopeless, and as forgotten as Kalona of the Silver Wings? Don't miss this second to last volume in the House of Night Other World saga!

When the ritual fails to work, the Fire Court's dark secret comes to light—the evil Fire King kidnapped his baby son eighteen years ago and took him through a portal to another world, which means the Fire Prince, Kieran, might still be alive, and without him, the ritual can't be completed. The only ones who can travel through the portal to find him are Cora and her best friend Declan.
Cora's inexplicable connection to Kieran turns out to be crucial to locating him in a world where magic doesn't exist. But taking Kieran back to Elemental Earth in time to complete the ritual before all magic is lost forever just might prove to be impossible...
The first book in the Element Earths series.
Back in our Tulsa, things have settled down since Zoey and the gang closed the tear between worlds. A new school year has begun, and Zoey's exchange student program with public schools is really taking off. All is well.
But if all is well, why is Zoey increasingly withdrawn and moody?
Stark thinks he knows what's wrong-and he is determined not to lose Zoey to the Other World and Heath, who is there and very much alive. Stevie Rae thinks she knows what's wrong-Z just needs a break. Maybe a little vacay? And the rest of the Nerd Herd thinks their Z will be fine-just give her some time to stop missing (and worrying about) Other Kevin.
But Zoey knows the truth. In the Other World her brother is using Old Magick, unaware of the dangers it holds. Without guidance, what will stop him from giving in to the potent pull of Old Magick? Without her guidance, Other Kevin could lose more than the war against Neferet-he could lose his soul. And Z knows she must help him-after all, he is her little brother ...
In Lost, we follow Zoey, Stevie Rae, and Rephaim to an alternative version of the House of Night, where dangers take the form of friends, and allies are found in the strangest places.
